Racism is racism, it doesn't matter the race, it doesn't matter the location. White race rally- wrong. Black race rally- wrong. Latino race rally- wrong. All equally wrong, for the same equally wrong reasons. Why is it race only matters if they are white,if they are any other race, they get to play the race card.

I think Spinal's point is how many times have you heard about La Raza members going around and beating up or killing white or black people just because they aren't latino? The KKK and Neo Nazi scumbags your comparing them to have a long disgusting history of doing just that.
Redlining is the practice of denying, or increasing the cost of services such as banking, insurance, access to jobs, access to health care, or even supermarkets to residents in particular, often racially determined, areas.
Although in the United States informal discrimination and segregation have always existed, the practice called "redlining" began with the National Housing Act of 1934, which established the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The federal government contributed to the early decay of inner city neighborhoods by withholding mortgage capital and making it difficult for these neighborhoods to attract and retain families able to purchase homes.
During the heyday of redlining, the areas most frequently discriminated against were black inner city neighborhoods. For example, in Atlanta in the 1980s, a Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles by investigative reporter Bill Dedman showed that banks would often lend to lower-income whites but not to middle- or upper-income blacks.
Dan Immergluck writes that in 2002 small businesses in black neighborhoods still received fewer loans, even after accounting for business density, business size, industrial mix, neighborhood income, and the credit quality of local businesses. Gregory D. Squires wrote in 2003 that it is clear that race has long affected and continues to affect the policies and practices of the insurance industry. Workers living in American inner cities have a harder time finding jobs than suburban workers.[22
Lending institutions such as Wells Fargo have been shown to treat black mortgage applicants differently when they are buying homes in white neighborhoods than when buying homes in black neighborhoods.
Bank of America on Wednesday was ordered by the Justice Department to pay a $335 million settlement for the company’s part in a discriminatory lending market that denied black and Hispanic home buyers the approval needed to purchase homes.
Allegations against Countrywide involved more than 200,000 minority borrowers and found that Countrywide charged those lenders more money than they charged to white borrowers with similar credit profiles from 2004 through 2008.

The fact the left has a long history of racism can't talk about anything today without being "accused" of racist.
The never switched sides they are the same as they have ever been instead of the cotton field promise free money for that vote.
A government check so the "few intellectual elite" become the master to people

Ah, the good ole' "If I'm so racist, then why was Abraham Lincoln a Republican, HMM?" argument.
Party name is far less important than the things they actually supported.
Some of you non-racist Republicans should google "southern strategy".

Yes. A hispanic civil rights group.
Hardly the brown Klan.
I don't see any problem whatsoever with the AG supporting them. As long as everything is legal and ethical.
